I can be who you want me to be…” Paloma Faith

For all those readers who had the deceiving conclusion that I was sane: I do now apologise, all mistaken! I am not. In fact, I am really not: I do truly believe that fairy tales are real…my excuse is: how could I teach little children if I did not?  I know it is true that to date, no one has proven that fairy tale creatures and acts exist, however, no one has proven the opposite either…I innocently do believe in the validity of princess beauty, I do believe in the strength of forever love, I do believe that one can be one wants to be and I indeed believe that for good conduct one gets good things in life. I do believe that the lessons of classic fairy tales create the only right approach to living life: love with passion, fight for it with power, stand by it with honesty and give to the loved ones from the deepest corner of the heart. Baking true, honest and tasty bread, in my opinion, has it all and it takes a devoted fairy tale-believer to do it well.

Fairy tales seem childish but fantasy psychologically is a state of mind that one can turn real if tried hard enough. Achieving things considered impossible by the public is done by those who don’t believe that anything is impossible and do believe in fairy tales. Disregarding negative comments and people, successful believers focus only on possible and on how to work for it.  As young children, they don’t pursue reasons, they just believe and others around them often wonder how. The very simple reason actually lies with those who question it: others adults taught them as children to have faith with no limitations. Life is a gamble and the amount risked will determine how successful one will be. Fear stands for : False Emotions Appearing Real…therefore, one needs to find the individual version of true reality and the individual limitless fantasy. Only then, fairy tales suddenly become real…

Preparation

Mix the ingredients thoroughly with a wooden spoon as it creates a very wet dough. Cover with plastic wrap and leave it to rest overnight. After resting, tip it on heavily floured surface and shape into baguettes very gently. Let it rise for 45 minutes, bake it in 200 degrees Celsius pre-heated oven for 45-50 minutes. In the last 5 minutes of the baking time leave it in the oven with the door open. Cool it on wire rack.
